It's now pretty hectic... you mean it wasn't before? Do you physicists get weekly tests or January tests, or can you just slack through most of this year?
You should sign up to the Blyth centre if you haven't already - the Steinway pianos there sound gorgeous compared to tacky little keyboards (I'm just thinking about my keyboard at home... maybe you have a nice keyboard). You can always get lessons when you have some time I got myself a tutoring job in London, so the money I get for that pays nicely for the piano lessons, leaving a healthy profit in fact!
Yes, London is a little colder than I was expecting. Having said that, I hear it's even colder up north, so perhaps we have nothing to complain about...
There's too many people in that business course to spot a person! Yesterday's was very good, although I admit I was only half listening with one ear (the other 75% of my efforts being absorbed by a linear algebra book) until a formula came up on the screen. So you spoke out in yesterday's lecture then? Hmmm... should have listened more closely!
Can you believe next week is the last week of term? I still feel new here - even though I feel completely settled in and everything - and that's about 1/9 of the degree over! (Or at least of the three year thing...) Any nice plans for christmas?
Hello there! How's life? I agree with everything you've said about Imperial - it's been amazing so far! The course is keeping me very busy though... there's just so much to learn!
Yes, I heard you became physics rep over fb; congratulations!
Have you managed to pursue playing the piano/keyboard at Imperial? I registered with the Blyth centre, and am getting lessons from an older student at Imperial. We've started from the very basic - reading music, scales and so on, but I'm enjoying it and feel like I'm progressing Free access to those lovely grand pianos is wonderful...
The holiday in China was lovely, but yes, it's very nice to be back! The bliss of being mosquito-free and not-too-hot temperatures! (Although it's starting to get to the point where I wish England was just a little warmer )
I don't know an Aarti but I'll probably see her around, I guess. That is one thing - the lectures are so big!
I'm also taking the business course for horizons Perhaps we've already bumped into each other...
You are probably way too busy having fun/getting drunk/dancing to answer this, but how's life at Imperial so far? Did you have a boat party too? Lovely roommates I hope?
Well, I arrived back in the UK a couple of days after you posted your last message Been swamped with all sorts of stuff since though... To answer your question, yes, there is a Chinese version of YouTube, but there's nothing quite like facebook... and TSR is of course irreplaceable! Just managed to set up the internet in Halls too. Being on the 8th floor in Weeks, there's no WiFi, so I had to get an Ethernet cable...
For Imperial Horizons, my first choice is probably going to be the Business one too. Besides that I want to do French. Otherwise, it's going to be one of the "Science, Culture and Society" ones. I think that if I did actually manage to learn Japanese and French well, I'd know enough languages.
I'll see you around I guess... We'll be in the same room for the Rector's Talk tomorrow.
I've texted a la number.
D: That's crazy! How did you get such a cheap room! Aww.. Well having a twin bed isn't too bad.. Are you allowed to push them together?
And no, I'm not in halls (as much as I wanted to be). My parents didn't like the sight of the room I was allocated and decided I was better off with a cupboard in Hounslow *sigh* It's horrible but I'm planning to move as soon as I possibly can.
What shopping do you intend to do, if you don't mind me asking? The pass sounds like a good idea... if I knew what that was. I've got myself an Oyster card (not a full one but it's good enough, I think) And please, please, will you message me your number and facebook id? I'd be honoured
Sure they do. Santa pulls the look off any time, any day. Don't criticize.
I hate you. No seriously. I do. I'm stuck in a TINY room that looks like someone's discarded basement! But.. I suppose, it's only temporary, and only 200 a month... You suck.
Free after lunchtime? hmm.. I'm meant to go to church around 10:30 with my tenants (Yes, I know. Shuddap.) So I'm not so sure when I'll be back... Give me your phone number, I'll text you when I'm free? Also, there is no way in hell's glorious ass I'm trekking through this East London community on my own. You better be somewhere close!
....I'm a doll. How's that for a wake up? I'm a short, fat, panda doll. Psshhtt... Hugh Grant can do more than eargasms for you, I'm sure.
Bankers are usually aged old folk. The sharp cut suit does NOTHING, I tell you.
Hotel room??!....You suck big time.
Hahha, awww.. That's very nice of you. Thank you. And yes, I'm not being bullied - don't worry dear knight, it is satisfying since I'm capable of doing it, the post-grad's english isn't too great and neither is her knack for technology so I'm helping (tedious).
Nevermind, I'm almost done with the diss. to leave it now and I leave for uni accommodation tomorrow so I won't be busying myself with TSR either. I'd love to meet you in London sometime. I've been looking for someone who could show me around?
Investment banking sounds very up-high. Suited for your ego and you, I must say. Being surrounded by money... hmm... Besides, the italicised almost tempted me to change my career options too! You should've put it in bold!
Thank you again but it might surprise you to know I do wake up sometimes and actually struggle to make a coherent sentence. It's terrible, I know! But sheeple>? I am not. I'm a tiger. A lone ranger. Indiana Jones' long lost cousin...
I'm a chick. I could never say anything about my looks you'll just have to see sometime and decide for yourself, I guess! And hmmm.. Ok. You have a gay side for Hugh Grant. It's understandable.. if a bit odd. But I have a thing for waistcoat-men. It's no wonder we get along so well.
British posh. I can't stand the other kinds! You should get yourself a monocle! You could set a theme for whichever bank you would be working for!
If it were for pleasure only, I'd have given you my phone number. Ah. You missed out!
Anyway, back to our character-exhausting discussions of yesteryear...
Such an easy language?! We apparently have ~8000 different sounds in English and according to the OED, there are ~250000 non-scientific words… probably the most in any language! Besides, there aren't tenses and so on in Chinese, which gets rid of all those rules we had to
waste time learning learn in primary school. Most characters also only have one pronounciation - not so in Japanese. And sentences have the same subject-verb-object structure like English, whereas Japanese is subject-object-verb (think Yoda! )
Nice notation though. But... you seem to be equating the mind to a set? Interesting.
It would indeed seem that The Dark Knight didn't make much of an impression, despite me having "watched" it about half a dozen times. My previous school had a "film club" that was mainly used for chatting and messing around, or in my case, usually playing cards or doing maths, rather than watching films. The only thing I ever remember them showing is TDK... in fact, I could almost swear the school only had one DVD. Anyway, they always showed it from the start, we never got anywhere near the end, and the film was usually drowned out ten minutes into club-time. It may be misleading to say that I ever watched it at all...
Broad? Well... Name any sport, and you'll have found a skill in which I am very very very sorely lacking. Except perhaps swimming. (At least I can swim. Only just. ) And I'm not a good cook either - those among my friends who bake and ice cakes as professional-looking as this have convinced me of that.
Okay, we finished an ABSOLUTELY PHENOMENAL... (wait for it)... THIRD in the Olympics. Satisfied?
Actually, we did very good. (And if we consider our size in proportional to China or USA... then we truly did. Astoundingly.)
Really really really really bad of me to reply so late... but in my defense, I have been meaning to reply for a while now, but the internet connection where I am in China is pretty dodgy. I've only been able to access TSR for about a minute at a time... Facebook/YouTube/
Everything fun is blocked - I love the freedom!
So I sent my certificates to Imperial and my place turned unconditional last week! YAY!!! Completed the registration and got the accommodation offer today too - now it's getting more real! I've been given Weeks Hall (at £151.06 a week) which I am very chuffed with. Where have you been assigned?
Have you seen that new Imperial Horizons thing they're doing? Any idea which courses you're going to go for (if any)?
Did so badly in additional further maths that it knocked off my A* in Futher Maths I'm wondering if I should get it recertificated so that I still have A* in FM but B in AFM. Curse my school for not doing maths on the same exam board, or I'd have A*A*A!!! So my overall is just A*AAAAAB (or A*A*AAABB... which looks better? Hmm...) and 2,2 in STEP... Meh, looks pretty TSR-average to me. Ah, I remember doing that exact same thing in physics last year - I still got the A (54/60) in the practical, but got a C in the exam due to complacency. Entered again in January but couldn't be bothered in the end, so I feel short of the A* by 2 UMS. Two!!
But seriously, that was a snipet. A snipet of a snipet. Also, I'm presuming that it is because of some legal reason, I'm getting goosebumps about posting too much of the work online. I would've shown you more - I know how much you loved it.
Oh and if it helps, I'll do my best Prince of Bel Air impersonation and dance for your forgiveness.
No. I’m kidding, honey. The only dance I do may be strictly censored for your bwaby eyes.
1) Yeah, I didn't know the word. Couldn't hurt to guess? :3 What career are you thinking about then? Physics is huge.
2) I'll pull the "Oh, English isn't my first language" guilt trip on you if you don't quit throwing prehistoric words at me. Including not so prehistoric slang such as "sheeple"... I checked the dictionary... meanie. Baaa...
3) I found that smiley rather fascinating actually. Google's perspective on Omani women is anything but reliable. I think my profile picture sums me up perfectly.
4) Accent? American. Middle Eastern. Arab. Rather sharp. Complex. Though I can put on a British without much difficulty. Actually, I half expect to see you wearing a top hat considering your words.
5) Yes. Okay. Portugal is... good. Fine.
Don't believe in it
